  • An excellent compact and overall experience on the cheap

    The phone is very easy to handle in one hand. The back camera is very reliable in every situation, video is digitally stabilized and very nice. The front camera is of high quality and even has autofocus. Conectivity is good. The display is very good, colours, contrast, the min bright is too high. I did had some minor problems with the touch. No fingerprint scanner. Overall is a grear option on the cheap.

  • This is bad product and the repair service is even worse.

    This is bad product and the repair service is even worse. I purchased the phone in October 2017. After only 2 months the touch screen was very unresponsive. Eventually it was completely unresponsive down the right hand side and I couldn't pull down the notifications menu. I returned it to the place of purchase who sent it for repair. I received no information on the progress of the repair and it was taking so long the retailer called the repairer to check the status. They were told the parts were on order and it would be a MINIMUM 5 week repair period. 5 weeks! For a phone. What was I supposed to do in the meantime?

    But you don't even need to take my word for it. Google "Sony Xperia XAI touch screen not working, unresponsive right hand side" and you'll see plenty of people with the same problem. Same problem with the phone, same 6 week repair period.

    this mobile seemed like a good performance experience

    the phone has good performance, good camera although in some cases it did not focus, the photos at night sometimes came out of quality 5 / 10. The battery performs well for a common user who does not play as much on the phone that commonly uses twitter, whatsapp, youtube quality 7/10

    At first everything was fine but with the passage of time it was all down the drain

    with respect to the screen is all a crap because after 4 months of use the screen began to fail at the edges and no longer gives for more, also a repair of this costs something of 100 soles. On the other hand is the battery that does not even last half a day of use, to be a company like Sony lately are taking out equipment mrd.

    • good performance in games

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
